UEFA have rejected Wales attempt to to have play-off conquerors Russia thrown out of the Euro 2004 finals.

UEFA decided that Russia’s Euro 2004 play-off win against Wales will stand despite Egor Titov failing a drug test.

Wales believed the 1-0 defeat to Russia in the Euro 2004 play-off should be void and instead declared a Wales 3-0 win, because Titov, had tested positive for a banned substance after the first leg of the play-off.

Titov had tested positive for bromantan in which he was an un-used substitute.

UEFA ‘s disciplinary committee heard the FAW’s appeal on Tuesday, but decided the case to have the result overturned was “unfounded”.

FAW secretary general David Collins said they had yet to decide whether to appeal against UEFA’s decision.
